The Roanoke Symphony Orchestra Virtuosi group’s performance of “Romantic Strings” will take place at the Squires Student Center Recital Salon on the Virginia Tech campus. The concert is being presented by the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech and will be presented in partnership with the New River Valley Friends of the Roanoke Symphony.

The performance will feature David Stewart Wiley, music director and conductor with a program that will include Mozart’s Romance (from A Little Night Music), Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, J. S. Bach’s Air on the G String, and Grieg’s Holberg Suite, Op. 40.

Through a comprehensive arts strategic plan, Virginia Tech has made a strong commitment to the arts on campus and in surrounding communities. The cornerstone initiative of the strategic plan is the $89 million Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech.  Opening in 2013, the Center will include a 1,260-seat, state-of-the-art performance hall for music, theatre, and dance performance as well as visual arts galleries for traditional, digital, and new media exhibitions. It also will include the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology, a laboratory for innovation where faculty and students, in coordination with partners from Virginia’s school systems, can research, develop, and apply modules for learning in a collaborative, transdisciplinary setting. The institute was built in conjunction with the existing resources at Virginia Tech, and its charge will be to address educational, economic, and cultural needs in Southwest Virginia.

The concert will be held on Saturday, Feb. 12, at 8 pm. Tickets are $25 for the general public and $15 for students. To purchase tickets, call (540) 343-9127 or go to the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra website:http://rsotickets.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1_138
